You can’t keep Mario Balotelli out of the news.
The Italian striker has made a phenomenal start to his spell in France. He has managed to score six goals in five appearances for Nice and has shown remarkable improvement in form.
It’s too early to say whether the old Balotelli is back, but signs are looking good at the moment.
The 26-year-old, however, has not ceased to be controversial and has hit out on Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp in his recent comments. Balotelli claimed that he was given a cold shoulder by Klopp in the summer
Sky Sports Italia journalist Fabrizio Romano recently tweeted comments from the Italian striker about his interaction with the German manager.
Balotelli to Sky Sport Italy: "Klopp? I don't know him. He just told me to leave #LFC on loan and then to come back. I said: 'Thanks, bye'"

There is good news for the Nice striker as his red card is likely to be revoked according to French publication L’Equipe.
He scored a goal in the 2-1 win against Lorient on the weekend and was shown a second yellow card in the 90th minute of the game.
The report claims that match referee, Olivier Thual, has taken a retrospective view on the second yellow card incident and has decided to revoke the card.
